QUOTE OF THE MONTH: "If you don't think it's a gamble to put a man in the White House who
believes we should have guns in church, who thinks the Taliban is a rock band, who was
such a failure as a businessman that his company was nicknamed "El-Busto," who
wants to turn our Social Security system into a Wall Street boiler room, who can't name a
single thing he disagrees with Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson on, who smeared a bona fide
hero named John McCain, and whose principle policy proposal is to give America's surplus
to the idle rich in the form of a $1.3 trillion tax cut, you're either nuts or a

It couldn't have worked any better unless the Bush
Campaign had asked Rupert to hire this Bush activist to call the election so the far west
voters would think the election was over and not vote, and that Al Gore would give up and
concede the election. Almost worked too.
But Ellis isn't just a Bush cousin who happens to work in television and stumbled into an awkward position on Election Night. He's a former Gingrich foot soldier, a raging partisan who is steeped in the Clinton-hating tradition of the far right. (That's something the Los Angeles Times, Associated Press, New York Times and even the New Yorker itself have failed to report in recent days.) Fox, of course, knew that.
The cable network describes Ellis as a "number cruncher." But that bland description doesn't exactly fit the Republican attack-dog columns Ellis penned during most of the '90s for the Boston Globe, and more recently for the New York Press.
To Ellis, President Clinton is an "amoral"
"sexual predator" who occupies "a morally berserk universe." Under
Clinton's depraved leadership, Ellis wrote, America faces a grim fate: "It will get
worse before it gets better, because the truth is, it will never get better until Bill
Clinton is gone."
As the Monica Lewinsky story began to break, Ellis was
positively breathless in that Matt Drudge kind of way: "The end could come with
astonishing speed. Senior Democratic Party officials were already beginning to speak of
how they might execute the president's departure. It's over. Clinton is finished. The rest
is endgame." (He was wrong)
On the eve of the '98 congressional elections, Ellis, like every other GOP true believer, was confident that "Clinton is to the Democratic Party what the Titanic was to its passengers. He's taking everybody down with him." (Wrong. Fed up with the impeachment hearings, voters dealt the GOP a humiliating blow.)
Hillary's Senate campaign in New York? "She will not
win because her candidacy isn't about New York, or the people who live here, or what she
might do for them. It's about her. The moment New Yorkers collectively understand this --
that they're being used -- will be the moment that her candidacy curdles. What might have
been 'you go girl' will become 'just go away.'"
So let's get this straight. Fox hired a partisan Bush cousin -- who thinks Gore's campaign practiced "stupid politics," that Hillary Clinton is "immoral" and her husband "loathsome" -- to run a crucial part of its election coverage. He spent Election Night on the phone with the Republican candidate and his closest advisors reportedly swapping embargoed voting data. And he was able, through his flawed call of Florida, to create the false impression that Bush had won the election.
